Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better.
— Nassim Taleb

Strong Towns aims to promote a model of development that allows America's towns and cities to become antifragile. The concept of antifragility is inspired, in large part, by Nassim Taleb's book, Antifragile. We explore this concept in the context of Strong Towns often.


At Strong Towns, we've explored the book, Antifragile, through an interactive, online book club and accompanying articles. We plan to continue the book club in 2017.

If you're a member of Strong Towns, you can join the online book conversation through a private Slack discussion channel. Sign up on this page. If you're not a member, become one today and we'll send you an invite to the Slack discussion.
